I have some users accessing their email via RPC/HTTP and I want them to be able to change their password. I have just a single Exchange server that is a DC at the same time( Exchange 2003 and Windows 2003 SP1).

I followed the steps on the following article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297121/  I click on change password and I entered what is asking

Domain: domain
user: user1
Old password: user1
new password: user01
Confirm new password: user01

And I keep getting the error:


 " Internet Service Manager
for Internet Information Server 6.0

Error number: -2147024891


Back"


Any ideas?? Is there anyway to change it thru the regular Outlook 2003 client?

Thanks

Do you have an ssl cert installed?

I do have a certificate and I know now what is causing the error but i do not know what to do about it. I had not mentioned that my users reside on different OU's and they are configured in such a way that their UPN is user1@domain.com (that's how they sign on OWA or regular Outlook. A user from the standard "Users" container can change their password just fine because their UPN is just user2(for example). I wonder if there's a way to make the Internet Services manager to accept the whole UPN a@b.com.

yes, there is a way to change it in outlook.

go to tools > options > advanced options > custom forms > Password, and voila. There is your change password feature deeply hidden in outlook.

hth,

Thanks for your answer. My issue is still not solved, but you provided the most appropiate solution under normal circumstances. What I mean is that my particular setup requires other factors to consider to solve the issue. Read carefully my previous comments. Nevertheless I will grant you the points because you answered my question
ok, so it sounds like you need the following:
